From the Luzerno Union.
My dead io the Summer gleaming,
I walked and wept in the darkened room,
And knew full well that the garden roses
Would never again unfold their bloom ;
Or the warm-eyed sun, with emblazoned fingers,
Dash pa!e gold o'er a world gloom,
Slowly I bent in that mournful twilight,
Over the form so dear to me—
Till my heart went out in its wild, wild sufferings,
Aod lett me a pitiful thing to see, —
With a broken life and a ceaseless longing,
With my own brave, beautiful doad to be.
That was all in a long gone twilight
And oft, since then, has tho tremulous bloom
Of Summers, more than my heart remembers,
Tossed white leaves in that very room,
Till scarce remembered the olden Heart-ache.
And death, and that desolate night of gloom,
So I am thinking and thinking , ver,
If, when they hide me from loving sight,
With warm caresses the sun will linger,
And clambering rose s blossom white T
And all fein things in the world aboie me
Still disport in the golden light ?
And sadness falls with the dews of twilight,
And over my spirit holds its reign—
Till the life within me forever troubleth
With vague unrest and a dull, pain.
For 1 know but a moment the crowd will miss me,
And then go jostling its way again.
A contrary arid croichery old chap was
Joel Shellenbarger, • rich old farmer, as
mulish as the donkey in hie barn. He had
made his way in the world by the doggedest
•bstinacy, seizing hold of whatever came in
his way, and retaining that hold as though
life de|>ended it. Joel's mulishness had lit
erally been the tnakiug of him, though you
might not have considered the littls pot bel
lied, thick skulled old man at much of •
make after all.
Jot I had one son—• handsome, clear
headed, active young—tall, straight, as a
young larch, and as set in his way, when he
chose to Lave one, at old Joel himself.—
This son, as he grew up had proved a great
assistance to his father in working the farm
and hi. services had been made most of, the
old man managing to keep him home with
him sometime after he ought to have been
doing for himself.
Not an acre of hi* father's nosseaiuns were
evor called the eon'a ; be owned nothing in
the world save a horse, which some sics'y
neighbor had given him when it was a sickly
colt, and some sheep obtained in much the
same manner ; and tha old man grudged
him the keeping of ihoae.
Joel Sballenbarger and bis Anson differed
often, but there were two points in which the
diflerence amounted to aomething serious.
The first point concerned education, for
which the old man had the most profound
contempt, and the son had not. There was
a college some dozen miles from the Shel
lenbarger farm, and thither, having thor
oughly prepared himself, in spite of fatherly
thwarting and oppotition, Anson betook
himself, in spite of the same continued oppo
sition. and by one contrivance awd another,
and helped out by his mother's small mark
eting, kept himself there until he graduated.
Joel Shallenbarger contested the ground
inch by inch, but was afraid, in his selfish
ness, to do anything more than he obstinate
lest his son should leave him. That was the
first point of difference, and that was how
Auson settled it. The second was not likely
to be of so easy an arrangement.
Al college Anson had found something
beside graduating honors. He bad chanced
upon a very charming combination of curls
and azure eyes—a red lipped dimpia-cheeked
fairy, daughter of one of the professors, who
instead of curling her dainty lip at tha home
spun suit which his poverty and his father's
mggardnese compelled him to wear, never
seamed to be conscious of anything or any
body else when he was by.
In short. Auson had found some one to
love—somebody that be waoted to marry—
as he gravely informed his father.
You ahould have seen the old man's eyes
—it was a mercy that they wero fast in their
sockets. ILre was gratitude I That Anson
having already defrauded bia old father of so
much of his time, was going now to set the
seal upon his absurdity and disobedience by
marrying a "town girl 1" Bad enough to
marry any, seeing nis father wasn't through
with him yef— but a town girl! He should
never conseut, and every Shellenbarger acre
should ge to strangers before Anscn should
have one, if ha persisted io an idea so ridicu
lous J"
. "And pray what harm ia there in being a
town girl ?" questioned Barbie Habtead
I when Anson told her, half-laughing, half
vexed, and altogether rueful.—for, without
MeiiUooe from bis father, he could sot msr-
ry Barbie for a long time yet.
Anson laughed again, but with 60ino em
barrassment, saying.
"My lather is afraid that a daughter of
Professor Hal Ulead would would uot make
a very good farmer's wife.''
"Does he think—?" Barbie hesitated,
lookmg with smiling perplexity at her little
white nands, "that these pretty hands don't
know much about brewing and baking,''
etc ?"
"Exactly ; I believe he thinks that."
"Then he thinks wrong," said Barbie, red
dvning, and looking up at her lover with a
comical little pout. "Did I not hear you
aay you needed a servant at home ! I've a
mind to go djwn and offer for ;he place."
Anson laughed again enjoyingly.
"We need one badly enough, but iny la
ther will not suffer one inside of the house."
"Why, how do you live then ? Who
cooks for you, now that your mother is un
well ?"
"We do our own cooking." Anson ►aid
with a return of ihe half smiling, half-em
barrassed expression. We cook for our
selves or do without."*
The very day succeeding the one (hat wit
nessed this conversation. Anson was at home
busying himself over some culinary opera
tions, when the outside door, which stood
ajar, was noiselessly pushed wide open, and
a singularly attired form presented itself ot*
the threshold It wore a red and irreen
plaid dress, the checks very large, a yellow
shawl, and a very frowzy and tumbled white
bonnet- A red feather, neaily as long as
Anson's arm, streamed from one side, and
a very frowzy and tumbled white bonnet.—
A red feather, nuarly as long as Anson's arm,
streamed from one side, and wuhiti the brim
flopped the immense frill of a cap which
clung close around the face of ihe stranger.—
The face—what could be seen of it, was a
very curieus one to be inside of such a bon
net and cap. Just now, as she surveyed the
kitchen and Auson—herself still unseen—
the muscles about her mouth twitched ner
vously, and her eyea twinkled with roguish
Presently Anson looked that way.
Instantly the face took a lugubrious length
anJ, coming into the room, the girl said, in
sinuatingly, but without looking at him
"An' ye would alther hirin' a servant the
day ?" and stood fidgetting with the fringe
of her shawl.
"I believe no'," sa'd Anson, coloring, with
some annoyance, perhaps at the nature ol
his employment.
"Shure, sir, an'the lady that sintme
Lord bless her swale eyes I—said you'd be
shure to take me on her recommendation,
which I has iu my pocket—and here 'tis
She gave him a little note.whieh proved lo
be from Barbie Halstead Anson read it
With very-like carefulness, but shook his
"I am very sorry, my good girl, but we do
not wish to hire a servant."
"Be like your father mayn't object whin
he sees me," th girl persisted.
Anson looked at the soiled white bonnet
and the red feather, and repressed usnnle,
wondering what his father would say. But
ha was of too kindly a. nature to be willing
to expose even this servant to bis father's
rough manner. lie repeated what he had
said before, assuring htr that it would be of
no use to sec his father.
The girl stood a moment. "If ye plase.
*ur, I'll just see him a moment, Belike lie
may lake a likiu' to the look of me."
And before he could reply she had crossed
the room, and stood upon the threshold of
the next. Anson followed presently, curious
to see what sort of a reception she wuuld
"Shure an' I'll d® plinty more 'ban I'm
worth to yees," she was saying with innor
ceni emphasis, as Anson entereJ.
She talked rapidly, pouring out such a
torrent of words that the old man could not
by any possibility slip, one in among them,
and sat regarding her with an expression of
the most ludicrous astonishment.
Thia remarkable volubility completely
baffled the old man's slowness. lie csuld
not say a word if ho wished to, and when
she concluded at last by saying,
"I csu make flapjacks and coru bri ad that
'ud bring the very out iv yer head and make
ye swally yer tongue with delighteoineness,
(if he had a weakness it was for flapjacks
and corn bread. He could only twirl his
thumbs in aso r t of delicious awe, and ask
her with a cunning smile how much she ex
pected to get for doing all these things.
"Seventy five cents a week," was the
prompt reply.
With a still more cunning laugh Jon) of
fered her half the money.
Greatly to hit amazement she agreed at
once, and he found himself, to use bit own
expression, "in for it."
To and to bis chagrin, Anson stood by
laughing with intense enjoyment. But the
girl, without further ado, proceeded to dis in
cumber herself of bonnet and shawl, and van
ished iu the direct ion of the rickety old kitch
eu before any thing could be said. A* she
shut the door she stole a glance at Anson
that tnade him start and bite bis lips, and
presently be stole jutchif(werd elso,
, 1 >i ' ' * -
| She was already at work, handling the
broom like an adept, and grumbling in her
rich Irish brogue at th§ dust hat had accumu
lated in the corners ; for the extent of An
son's and his lather's sweepings had been to
brush the centre ot the room, somewhat to
the disadvantage of the rest,
She did not look up as Anson entered : but
Ire sat down and delibejately but furtively
watched her, For some time she seemed un
conscious of his scrutiny ; hut presently she
1 urued, and crossing both little hands upon
the top of the broom handle, said, with a
mixture of bravado and archness too natural
to be mistaken :
"Weil, Anson, what do you think ?"
The young man laughed and looked annoy
ed in the same breath.
"Then it is you, Barbie ?" he said. "I was
suspecting something of the sort"
"Not till I looked at you," said the girl
roguishly, retreating as he approached.
"Do you think this is quite the thing' Bar
h.e ?"
"Shure, an' why an't it the thing for a
poor girl lo be getun' her livin' dacently and
honestly ?"
And that was all he could get out of her.
Having acknowledged her identity with
Barbie for an instant, she was the most un
approachable "Biddy " the next, and would
have nolhu.g to say to him save in that char
"Does your father know of this, Barbie ?
What would he say ?" persevered Anson,
"Shure, an' it's not me own fader would be
intcrferin wtd tne,.would he ?" said Biddj .
111 vain were all remonstrances with the
roguish and wilful girl. She persisted in be
ing Biddy even to him,and maintained a dis
tance between them very different from that
between him and Barbie in her own proper
self. Annoyed, provoked, chagrined, almost
angry, the advent of his father forced him to
retire from the kitchen, for fear of betraying
Birbte, which he would not have dona fur a
great deal.
It w is several hours before he could return
to the house, his father having joined him,
and upon one pretext and another detained
him. When at last they enteied together,
kitchen, and sitting mom, both of which had
been in a most untidy state when they left
there, had under gone 6uch a remarkably
renovating process that old Joel drew back al
first, thinking he, had set foot in somebody
else's house instead of his own. Supper was
smoking on the table—such a suppet as old
Joel, at least had not been seen fur months
To crown all Mrs. Shellenbarger was sitting
propped with pillows, in a great easy chair,
and looking wondrously contented, and with
reason- -the poor lady had not a woman's
hand about her before, since her illness.
They lived in such an isolated, inhospitable
manner, that very few of their neighbors even
knew hat Mrs. Shel lenbarger was not as well
as usual. Biddy as she called herself, had
tidied the poor lady up iu a wonderful man
J. el Sliel'enbarger sat down to the daintily
spread table, and made a most hearty ana
keenly relished meal, glancing askance al
Biddy meanwhile. Anson, strange to say,
ate very little, and he watched Biddy askance
This was only the beginning of the reform
thi*daring yirl instituted. First, however, as
much for her own peace of mind as Anson's
knowing that mother and son were fa6t
Iriends and always of one opinion—she told
her secret to Mrs. Shellenbarger, and fairly
wheedled her into approval. It is true that
that she shook her head at first, and looked
wondrously shocked. But it was so charming
to have those littie soft hands fluttering
about her, and see such brightness and com
fort soring up around, that she could not, for
her own ake, help countenancing as much as
silence could, Bn'dj's mysterious presence.
I havn't time to give you all the particulars,
bul having made a good beginning with a true
Irish facility. Biddy established herself in a
vei v short time completely in the good graces
of the old man. lie had a lurking liking for
neatuess and order, and Mrs. Shellenbarger
wasn.t a very tidy housekeeper. Under the
new reign, order grew out of chaos; the
house seemed in holiday garb all tha time,
and an atmosphere of social cheerfulness per
vaded everything.
One morning—Biddy had said something
about leaving (tie day before—the old man
ended a grumbling complaint of Anson with
" I never seen any good come of eddication
yet. If it hadn't a been for that college busi
ness you uught have taken a liking to a
sensible girl and she to you." He glanced ot
Biddy as he spoke, She turned scarlet, and
came near dropping the dish she was holding.
It was not the fiist tune Anson had heard
such insinuations, and ho raiher enjoyed Bid
dy's trepidation.
" See here, father." he said roughishly,just
you pick me out a wife, and see what will
come of it "
''The only girl worth having, wouldn't you
I dare say— would you, Biddy?" Joel said
grumblingly, bat suddenly, turning then to
the gir!.
Ansoo was smiling maliciously, Bridget
O'Flynn had kept. Ibrbie's lover at a most
tantalizing aud unrelenting distance ail this
time. Making detporatc effort, Biddy nl-
Jied her contused SPDse to say, with consider
able self possesion;
'• Shure, r, an't meself that'll not be after
havin' any man till I'm asked."
" Biddy, will you inarry me?" said Anson,
gravely, extending his hand.
" I will that now," said Biddy, promptly
putting her hand in his.
Old Joel came near choking with amaze*
meot. It was too late to recede, however,
even had he wished to, as they soon made
him understand. lie went our of dooti
presently, and privately pinched himself to
ascertain if he were in his senses or not.—
Seeing the two standing in close conversation
by the window soon after, he crept with the
same laudable intention toward them, under
cover of the bushes that grew by the side
of the house.
''Now, Barbie," Anson was 6aying, laugh -
ingly, "what is to done next. I must say
you've managed wonderfully so far, but what
do you suppose he'll say when he knows you
are not Biddy at all ?
"Not Biddy at all ?" screamed Joel Shel
lenbarger, struck with a sudden suspicion of
he knew not what, as he started out of cov-
ert. ~ .
There stood Biddy, the white Irill of her
close cap as immense as ever. She. laughed,
though when she saw him, and deliberately
taking off her cay, shook her bright curls all
about her face, and reaching towards him
her little hand, said archly, "Shure, sir, an'
ye won't be afther hatin' a poor girl because
her name's Barbie llalstcad instead of Biddy
O'Flynn !"
"You—you Professor Ilalslead'a girl 1" '
"Professor Ilallstead is my father., sir,"
said Barbie, in her = atural tones.
"What's that!"
Barbie repeated it.
"And ycv are not Irish ?"
"Niver a bit."
The old man stood a moment, clouds gath
ering in his laco. /
" Well," Anson," he said, rather surily,
you've outwitted me again—much good may
it do you. You'd better get out the horses,
lie must want to see her by this time."
"Yes, sir." And Anson colored with min
gled anger and amazement.
Barbie did not change countenance, how
ever, Extending that pretty band of hers
again, she said sweetly, "You'il shake hands
with me sir ?" i
Joel Shellcnbarger turned back and gave
his band awkwardly, The girl took it in
both her hands, bending her bright arch face
towards him and saying, ''l shall come back
some time sir. Will you be glad to see me
Joel hemmed and hawed, and stammered
out at last, "Yet, yes ; come back Biddy—l
mean Miss O'Flynn—l mean mist—"
"Barbie," suggested the girl, quietly..
"Yes come back ; and the sooner the bet
ter . There, Anson, make the most o'nt."
Barbie did come back, in a very few weeks
too, and nobody was gladder to see her than
old Joel, though he was a little shy at first
of Profeosor Hallstead's girl. She soon made
him forget, however, anything save fcb&t she
was Anson's wife ; and the way he humored
the sly puss with sundry grants of money,
refurnishing and repairs, Ac.. I couldn't be
